KOD exo(-) DNA Polymerase /Anti-KOD Hotstart Antibody

KOD DNA polymerase exhibits an excellent elongation capability (approx. 130 bases/sec) and strong 3’→5’ exonuclease activity (proofreading activity). However, its sensitivity and efficiency are subject to interference from the enzyme or template concentration during PCR, due to its strong proofreading activity. KOD exo(-) is a 3’→5’ exonuclease minus mutant developed based on KOD DNA polymerase from a hyperthermophilic Archaeon Thermococcus kodakaraensis.

Key Characteristics

        • Excellent processivity & extension ability: Extention time of the thermal cycle can be set <30 seconds / kb.
        • Great sensitivity & efficiency: PCR sensitivity and efficiency are improved due to elimination of 3’-5’ exonuclease activity.
        • Hot start PCR: anti-KOD DNA polymerase antibody for the polymerase activity is available.
        • Can be applied to the real-time PCR: This enzyme can be applied to the real-time PCR assay, except for TaqMan assay due to lacking of the 5’-3’ exonuclease activity. A fast mode cycle can be applied.
